The Michigan players rocked the white models, even though they didn’t quite match their uniforms. It didn’t matterâ€”it was their shoe. But once they started their all black everything push, they asked Nike for a black model, and Nike responded. The Michigan colors are maize and blue, but these shoes were all black with hits of lighter blue on the midsole’s cut out window, the inner sock lining, and the plastic reinforcing section of the heel. Soon Foot Lockers started seeing them fly off the shelves, along with long Michigan shorts and jerseys.
